We started in snow in the Poconos on Tuesday at 11:00 AM.  We stopped over in the middle of North Carolina… Started this morning at 8:15 AM. Started in horrible rain.  Half way through Georgia the sun came out and it was 85 degrees…. Hit lots of traffic in Florida and didn’t arrive in Orlando till 8:00 PM. Long Day, but we did all the grocery shopping and have a great menu planned for tomorrow…

Homemade Beef Ravioli without a Pasta Machine!



This was a great meal!!! 3 Ravioli’s were plenty… Using the Wonton Wrappers made them a bit lighter than Italian Pasta… Casaculinarian.com try’s to help you make gourmet meals with shortcuts for your limited time… We know you are busy!!! Check it out…

wonton wrappers 1 package produce aisle

beef chop meat 80/20- 3/4 pound

garlic one clove minced

onion 1/4 of an onion minced

salt and pepper for taste

shredded mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup

ricotta cheese 2 tablespoons

bread crumbs 2 tablespoons

Italian seasoning 1/2 teaspoon

parsley 1/2 teaspoon

oregano 1/4 teaspoon

basil 1/2 teaspoon

grated parmesan cheese 2 tablespoons

egg 1 for wonton wrappers

In a saute pan brown off your beef on medium heat. Drain fat and add garlic and onions. Continue to stir and add basil, oregano, parsley, Italian seasonings, salt, and pepper. When Onions and garlic become transparent, take off the stove and let cool for 10 minutes. In a Kitchen Aide with the Paddle, add your seasoned beef, bread crumbs, ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Mix till meat mixture is blended. Examples below.


This recipe yielded 13-14 Large Meat Ravioli… Of course you can make any type of stuffing you would like…

Lay out half of your Wonton Wrappers on a clean cooking surface. Make egg wash with one egg. You will need a pastry brush. With the pastry brush coat each wrapper with egg wash. Add another wrapper to the top and egg wash the top as well… Example below.


Take a small Ice cream scoop and place a ball of meat in the middle of half the wrappers. The other half are for the top.


Cover each one with a wrapper egg side down. With a fork make a seal around the square to keep your Ravioli closed.


Cut your edges clean with a pizza cutter. Top Image of the page. Boil Ravioli for 6-9 minutes in salted water. Fresh pasta cooks fast do not over cook. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and mix after pasta has been drained so they do not stick. Top with Tomato Basil Sauce and serve with Baker Pippi’s Cheesy Garlic Biscuits. Both links below. Enjoy, Jason.

Fresh Homemade Mozzarella

A Different way of Making a Turkey Dinner


Great Sunday Feast tonight on Casaculinarian.com

Only the Mashed Potatoes were fattening so you can substitute them with a simple Baked Potato if you like…

We started with an average size Turkey Breast, We de-boned the Breasts. Seasoned and tied them together, then set them in the Ronco Rotisserie to cut the fat… If you do not have one you can cook the Breasts in the oven on 325 till internal temperature is 165 degrees.

turkey breast any size, de-boned

olive oil 2 tablespoons

paprika 1 tablespoon

bacon slices 2 (optional)

Kosher salt for taste and tenderizing (recommend 1 tablespoon)

pepper for taste

Italian seasonings 1 teaspoon

onion powder 1 teaspoon

granulated garlic 1/2 teaspoon

parsley 1 tablespoon

seasoned salt 1/2 teaspoon

dry thyme 1 tablespoon

I de-boned the Turkey Breasts. Placed them on a plate. Coated both sides of each Breast with olive oil and all the seasonings. Placed one piece of Bacon on the inside part of each breast. Example below.


Now I’m going to join the insides together and tie them with butchers twine. Example below.


Now I will place it in the Rotisserie for 1 hour and 10 minutes… Please check your temperature after one hour. Size and cooking time varies, They cook faster with out the bone. Same for the oven on 325 degrees. Cook till internal temperature is 165 degrees.

I served this with Brussel Sprouts, Gravy, and Mashed Potatoes… What a Great Dinner!!! Thanks for visiting, Jason!
